The Art Beat Foundation pleased to present the second edition of its new Art Beat Bazaar at the Starry Plough Sunday, March 18 from 3pm-7pm! In cooperation with our sponsors, we will also have $3 Trumer Pils specials, as well as the Starry Plough’s full kitchen menu!
This month’s Bazaar features:
Karen Finlay (not to be mistaken with the “other” Karen Finley) has her MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College, and was the recipient of the Marion Boess Haworth Award in 2002 and 2003. Her work can be seen on her blog “97 Things To Do Before I Turn 97,” Muni Diaries and facebook status updates. In between selling Tupperware, performing weddings, and throwing fabulous potlucks, she is working on a Young Adult novel. She likes pina coladas but hates getting caught in the rain.
Christina’s love for musical diversity, natural songwriting ability and undeniable stage presence has led her to various musical projects including a set of Nashville inspired rock demos in 2007, Indie pop/rock band Big American Family from 2008-2009 and her current “folk-acana” project:honeymoon. Touring the live music scene in California, Christina has opened for a diverse set of musicians from Mary Chapin Carpenter to Jackie Greene, Joan Osborne, The Punch Brothers, Carney to the The Doobie Brothers. Along with honeymoon she played the Garden Stage at The Greek Theater in LA to open for Ray LaMontagne and David Gray in 2010. Christina is building her resume of shared stages and when not on the road as one of four front women in honeymoon, she is writing and preparing to record her first hands on solo project, a mix of her inspiration and love for singable ballads and upbeat rock tunes.
